Workgroups assemble to address issues and find solutions related to Oregon health transformation.
Workgroups are comprised of CCO Oregon members and select stakeholders who meet monthly and engage in a transparent, consensus-driven dialogue to develop: position statements, voluntary agreements, suggested standards of care, and support for rules and regulations. Each workgroup chair and its members establish the purpose, goals and deliverables, which vary by group.
Dental: The Dental Workgroup is focused on the integration of dental care in the CCOs for the optimization of resources being directed to patient care and reduction of administration costs for achievement of the Triple Aim.
Integrated Behavioral Health Alliance of Oregon: The Integrated Behavioral Health Alliance of Oregon (IBHAO) Workgroup is focused on the integration of primary care behavioral health for Oregonians to increase access for care and improve outcomes for achievement of the Triple Aim.
Pharmacy: The CCO Oregon Pharmacy Workgroup convenes to create thoughtful recommendations for the advancement of quality metrics, promotion of best practices, and to collaborate on innovative solutions to pharmacy challenges impacting achievement of the Triple Aim.
State and Federal Regulatory Affairs:
The State & Federal Regulatory Affairs Subcommittee will monitor the activities of state and federal agencies, interim legislative committee, other public commissions and workgroups.
Social Determinants of Health: The Social Determinants of Health Workgroup is focused on creating recommendations for measurement tools for pressing social determinants of health to help advance current policy, funding, and other efforts to address the health of Oregonians.
